The Hottest Shoe Trend of Summer!

May
29

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you have to only wear sandals or open toed shoes.  It’s actually more fun to wear non-sandals during the hot months!  Yes, it might get a little sweaty or warm when your foot is in a sock, but hey, it does look good.  Boots, tennis shoes and thigh highs–aka wearing closed toed shoes–is the hottest trend this summer.  So put away your sandals, and check out 5 ways to wear your closed-toed shoes year round!

1) Combat Boots

Kylie Jenner blew me away with her Coachella outfits and teal hair, but I think my favorite part was the boots–she rocked cream colored Timberland boots.  In the below picture, Kylie was out and about in LA after Coachella and decided to rock a skintight dress, baggy coat, baseball cap, and her Timbs.  The Timbs provide that perfect touch of edge to her look.

In the second photo, Kylie wore her Timbs to Coachella, pairing it with white hot shorts, acrop top, long vest and a baseball cap.  Like the first look, the outfit is super simple, and the boots give a rough vibe to it.  If she wore it with sandals or heels, it would be too feminine and soft–the boots toughen up the whole look.

2) Thigh Highs

Chrissy Teigen wore thigh high boots with a gray tank, denim shorts and a black handbag.  The shorts and tank are really simple, but when you add the thigh high boots, it makes the wholesome look more sexy and more nighttime fancy.  The thigh highs will literally take any shorts and tank combo and make it sexier and so chic.

Selena Gomez’ outfit is similar to Chrissy’s–except the top is 3/4 sleeves and she chose a bib necklace and black thigh highs.  Tucking in her shirt is not only figure flattering, but it shows off the shorts.  She left the back part of the shirt untucked, which gives some coverage, but it adds that effortlessly cool touch to it.

3) Sneakers

Rihanna styled the perfect outfit for a night out if you don’t want to wear heels.  She wore her Nike sneakers with a white bodysuit, denim shorts, red lips and a baseball cap.  She also added a printed backpack, a bodychain, bracelets, a choker and really large hoops.  The key to this look is adding a lot of accessories, like RiRi, and the bold red lip–that’s what will take the sneakers to nighttime chic.

4) Booties

Candice Swanepoel’s outfit is so on point–from her white tank, to her western belt and white wash denim shorts.  The black handbag and snakeskin patterned booties make it such an edgy, fun look.  The booties provide a nice pattern, while the black bag and belt balance out the light top and jeans.  Perfect for a day out of shopping, a date, or school.

In the next photo, Vanessa Hudgens was photographed wearing overalls, a black crop top and baseball cap and studded booties.  Overalls can be toughened up by incorporating a lot of black.  The crop top shows some skin, which makes it sexier than your average overall get up, while the edge is introduced through the boots and hat.

So next time you’re heading out the door in shorts and tank, instead of reaching for sandals or flip flops, pull out your boots or sneakers to change up your look.  These shoes will always make your look sexy yet still so chic!  Let me know which look you like best!

5 Different Ways to Wear White This Summer

May
27

This summer, instead of grabbing your black jeans and tops, why not try white?  White is an amazing color to wear in the summer, because it’s effortless and light–you definitely won’t be hot in it!  It’s also a classic color that will brighten your look, no matter what.  Check out five different ways you could be wearing white this summer!

1. White T-Shirt Dress X Denim Jacket X Nude Heels

Kim Kardashian looks like the picture of summer, wearing a fitted white T-shirt ankle length dress with nude lace up heels.  She brought along a light wash denim jacket–the perfect jacket for a white dress. The dress is super fitted but the tank top type sleeves of the dress and denim jacket keep the look casual.  The nude colored heels compliment the dress and elongate her body.

2. White Blouse X White Midi Skirt X White Belt

Olivia Palermo looks so chic in her all white get up–white blouse tucked into a white midi skirt with a white belt, with a pop of color–her dark lace up heels.  She wore simple accessories and had bright red nail polish.  This look is great for work, a night out or even a fancy date!  The monochrome color scheme pulls the whole look together and the red nails and heels give it a pop of color.  To keep the look from being too white, she finished off the look with dark lace up heels, which give the outfit a nice edgy touch.

3. Cropped High Neck Blouse X High Waisted Trousers

Vanessa Hudgens wore a high neck cropped blouse with high waisted white trousers, nude heels and a black handbag.  The cropped blouse actually is actually patterned, with some sheer elements to it–which balances out the crisp white trousers she paired it with.  The nude heels are simple and compliment the formal look.  Vanessa decided to add a black bag, which give a touch of edge to an overall fancy look.  She wore her hair in a high bun, which gives us full view of the detailed high neck feature of her top.

Candice Swanepoel wore a button up Henley Tee with her white ripped denim, finishing off the look with a blue flannel tied around her waist and tan booties.  This is such an effortlessly cool look, and very simple to recreate.  Ripped white denim is a great addition to your wardrobe because it’s much fancier than blue or black colored denim, and it brightens up any look. The Henley t-shirt gives the outfit a sexy touch and looks so comfortable! The flannel gives the look a pop of color and makes it less formal.  The nude booties are the perfect shoes for this look–they look tough because they’re boots, but the nude color keeps the look from being too edgy.

5. White Tank X Cuffed Pants X Blush Blazer X Pink Bag

Jessica Alba knows how to look cute and still look casual!  In this look, she chose a white loose fitted tank, with white trousers she cuffed and flat sandals.  Jessica added a pop of color with a blush colored blazer and a pink purse.  Blush and pink colors look great with white, and this look is no exception.  By cuffing the trousers, she makes the look less formal, along with the flats she wore.  The blazer is very loose fitting and the hem is much longer than your normal blazer, but not long enough to be called a duster coat.  This is a great length for the look because it’s more casual than a regular blazer and the length adds a definite chic factor.  I’ve been seeing pink purses everywhere and the reason why is because it’s fun, it compliments pretty much any color you pair it with, and it’s different than your regular cream or nude purse.

5 Ways to Wear High Waisted Jeans With a Crop Top!

May
26

High Waisted Jeans with a crop top is a great go-to look this summer–not only is it stylish, but comfortable too.  High Waisted jeans were THE look of the 1990’s, especially when paired with a crop top.  In reality, high waisted denim first became popular in the 1940s, and flared high rise jeans an IT item in the 1970s.  No matter what decade, high waisted jeans will always be a timeless piece in your closet!

Check out five different crop top and high waisted denim looks that you could be rocking this summer!

1. Wear Stripes With a Sweater Tied Around Your Waist

Selena Gomez put together a casual sporty look for a day out in LA.  She chose a striped red and white crop top, pairing it with high waisted boyfriend jeans, white tennis shoes and a sweater around the waist.  The crop top is very fitted, but balanced out by the loose style of jeans and the choice of sneakers.  I love the sweater around the waist–its very 90’s chic and perfect to wear for those cool nights.

2. Add a Belt and Ankle Boots

Blogger Jazzabelle Rocks wears her high waisted denim with a belt, loose crop top and ankle boots.  Each piece is simple but put together it looks so effortlessly cool.  She kept the colors to black and the light wash denim–the perfect combo. The ankle boots really grunge up the outfit and the belt detail finishes the look.

She is such a gorgeous lady with impeccable style–make sure to follow her instagram @jazzabellediary and her blog: jazzabellesdiary.blogspot.com.

3. Pair With Heels and a Fitted Top

Ariana Grande chose dark-wash high waisted jeans and a fitted crop top and black heels.  This is a easy look to put together when you’re in a rush and want to look cute.  The crop top is super simple but adding the high waisted jeans makes the outfit very chic.  The heels give a nice fancy touch to the overall look, which allow the look to be worn both day and night.

4. Choose a White Loose Fitted Long Sleeve Crop Top and Add a Pop of Color

Kylie Jenner wore light wash denim with a loose-fitted white long sleeve crop top blouse and lace up heels.  The pink handbag adds a great pop of color to an overall simple look.  While hers is a mini Saint Laurent bag, any color or any bag would be perfect for this look, as long as it’s in a bright color.

5. Add a Cropped Sweater With Flared Denim

Emma Roberts decided to wear flared high waisted denim with a mustard colored cropped sweater and leopard print heels.  She added a tan belt as well as a gold handbag.  This is such a refreshing take on high waisted denim because of the flared bottoms.  I love the 1970s inspired denim she chose, as well as pairing it with animal print heels and a fun colored sweater.  This look is great for night outs or a date–it’s casual but so effortless stylish too.

The first time I saw the photo of Hailey Baldwin in a red Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren floral maxi dress with suede boots and turquoise jewelry, I was speechless!  I love how she paired the suede boots with a long dress–instead of grabbing sandals or heels, she chose knee high boots that compliment the high slit of the dress.

The turquoise jewelry gives the whole outfit such a boho Western vibe. This is a perfect look for spring/summer because it is comfortable yet chic!  The turquoise jewelry also reminds me of one of my fave ladies–Raquel Welch–who also loved turquoise and Native American and Western looks.

Travel Diaries: Seed Kitchen in Venice Beach, CA

May
20

Seed Kitchen Venice BeachSeed Kitchen:
1604 Pacific Avenue
Venice Beach, CA 90291

My sister and I visited Seed Kitchen in Venice Beach a couple of Saturdays ago.  We were absolutely starving and on our way home from Orangetheory Fitness in Santa Monica.  Seed Kitchen is completely vegan, organic and macrobiotic.  We couldn’t decide between here and Cafe Gratitude but eventually decided on Seed because it was on the way home and we wanted to try a new spot.  Parking was absolutely horrible because there’s only about 20 parking for 5 restaurants and it’s right by the beach.  It was a Saturday afternoon so it was of course packed and we had wait a while for a spot.  You also have to pay for parking but that’s not really a surprise in LA.

Once we got in, the cashier was helpful and patient even though we were asking a ton of questions.  Their menu is pretty small so there weren’t many choices. Most of the dishes contain seitan or tempeh.  I personally don’t like seitan or tempeh because I don’t really want my meals to taste like “real meat”–I don’t like the flavor of that.  They have lots of burgers, panini, and grain bowls, but most of these items have faux meat or cheese in them.

Seed Kitchen Sweet Potato Fries

He recommended the Southwest burger, which contains an original bean and grain burger, along with lettuce, soy cheese, avocado and ancho chili spread. We decided to get that, but without the soy cheese, and added an order of sweet potato fries.  It’s pretty pricey here, but I guess you need to take in account that everything is organic.  The burger cost $11.95 and comes with coleslaw.  The sweet potatoes cost $6.00.

The burger came on a soft ciabatta-type bread, which perfectly complimented the smokey spicy flavors of the burger. The flavor was actually really delicious, especially the bean and grain patty.  It wasn’t really that spicy but it definitely had a really good flavor.  The fries were absolutely delicious!  They didn’t taste oily, and were crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside.

One major downside to Seed Kitchen is the fact that they actually don’t have a bathroom.  My sister and I like to wash our hands before eating and that was not possible. They only offer sanitizing wet wipes, which personally I don’t think cleans your hands very well.

Overall, pros included excellent bean based burger and delicious fries. Cons are the bad parking situation and no bathroom, but if you’re in the area or at the beach and need a quick lunch, Seed Kitchen is your spot.

Trend Alert: All About Camouflage!

May
18

I have been obsessing over camouflage and I’m definitely not the only one!  Camouflage is called many things-camo, army, khaki–but at the end of the day, it’s pretty much just a pattern that is seen on military uniforms, using colors like hunter green, light green, etc.  Camo is a definite addition that will toughen up any outfit.  Check out how Kim Kardashian, Cara Delevingne, Rihanna, Rita Ora and Kylie Jenner styled their camo!

1. Camo Jacket

A camo jacket is a great way to make any outfit look edgy.  For this look, the key is all about fit–you don’t want your jacket to be too fitted.  The jacket should be loose and even a little baggy.  The reason is that when it’s baggy, it tends to look more casual and effortless.

Lily Aldridge wore her army jacket with a white tee, black jeans and suede gray boots.  This is such a simple look but the army jacket really gives the whole look dimension and color.  Instead of being a simple black and white look, the army jacket gives it a cool girl vibe.  The suede boots and black handbag are the perfect accessories to complete the overall look.

I was hoping the camouflage would hide me from the paps… 😂

Rita Ora took the army look to another level, pairing her oversized jacket with leggings, white sneakers and a baseball cap.  She wore her baggy jacket with leggings–the perfect combo because they balance each other out.  Adding the white sneakers and hat adds an athletic touch to the look, and the result is nothing less than cool chic!

Kim Kardashian wore her army jacket to Kanye West’s Adidas show, and she definitely rocked the look!  This look is all about texture and fit!  She chose an oversize army jacket with capri brown leggings, a crop top and sheer top.  This look is probably a little too much for everyday–unless you switch the bottoms with black leggings (that go all the way down to your ankles).  I actually really love the sheer turtleneck under the crop top but you can also wear it the other way–with the crop top underneath the sheer turtleneck.  You could also switch the crop top with a similar colored bralet underneath.  The key to this look is the layers–and I love how Kim pulled her jacket sleeves up so you can see the sheer turtleneck. She finished off the look with dark beige booties–such a chic touch!

Kylie Jenner wore her army jacket with black jeans a a black top, finishing off the look with black booties.  This look is all about the army jacket and by keeping the rest of the look black, it keeps the focus on the camo.  This is a great daytime look but it will also look great in the evening as well because of the booties.

2. Army Pants

Army patterned pants are another great addition to your wardrobe and on the plus side, you can wear them year round!  Below is two different takes on the camo pants-version one is fitted skinny jeans, while version two is baggy high waisted cargo inspired pants.

Cara Delevingne took her army patterned jeans and styled it with a moto jacket and black tee. She finished the look off with hunter green combat boots and sunnies. The moto jacket with the camo patterned jeans is a great combo because while the jacket is fancy, the jeans are casual–giving off a chic vibe.

Kim Kardashian really loves her camo! This time she styled her camo high waisted pants with a white crop top, black duster coat and hunter green heeled boots.  The high waisted pants balance the revealing crop top.  The white crop top is the perfect feminine touch to the overall military tough look, as well as adding heeled boots.

3. Camo Shirt

If you’re not ready to commit to an army jacket or pants, try the next best thing–an army patterned shirts.  Rihanna and Cara show us two easy ways to take a camo shirt and make it look good!

Rihanna wore her cropped army jacket with cuffed boyfriend jeans and army patterned heels, adding in a backwards gold hat.  Rihanna took the camo and just went with it–choosing to match the heels with the shirt.  By choosing loose fitting boyfriend jeans keeps the look from being too revealing.  She keeps the look sexy by wearing a cropped shirt, showing off her stomach.

Rihanna Crop Top Army Camo Camoflauge Shirt Heels Style

Cara decided to style her army patterned shirt with a leather jacket and jeans, adding in a backwards cap and blue-green sunglasses.  This is such a fun look! The key to this look is keeping the main pieces simple–the jeans and jacket, while adding in fun accessories, like the sunglasses and hat.

4. Camouflage Patterned Hat

Rihanna shows us all how to take camo and make it fancy!  She wore her camo trucker hat with a high neck black crop top and mini skirt, finishing off the look with black heels, red lips, and a gold necklace.  She kept her hair up so that the main focus is the high neck top and gold choker, and added a leather jacket in case the night gets cold.

A denim jacket is such a timeless piece and will always be stylish.  It gives any outfit that laidback vibe and is the ultimate summer time piece.  You can add it to a maxi dress, mini dress, skirt, jeans–you name it, it looks good.  If you have a denim jacket and need some outfit inspo, check out these 9 ways to style it.  And if you don’t have one, I’ve listed a couple of great jackets you could purchase.

1. Mini Dress X Denim

Candice Swanepoel wore a simple black mini dress with a denim jacket and hat and looked amazing!  She chose a high neck dress, which balances the whole look.  To give it a more effortless vibe, she wore boots to complete the look. She cuffed her sleeves of her jacket, which is a great way to make the look less preppy.

2. White Cropped Top and Jeans X Denim

Kendall Jenner chose a fitted denim jacket to compliment her white cropped top and skinny jeans.  This is such a sexy chic daytime look but still so casual.  Her Chanel espadrille loafers definitely dress the look down while still keeping it classy.  She kept her accessories to a minimum and the result is perfection!

 3. Stripes X White X Denim 

Kim Kardashian took a business type striped shirt and really made it look sexy!  She wore her striped shirt with her denim jacket cuffed, finishing off the outfit with classic white jeans and nude heels.  I love the way she kept a couple of buttons of the top open of her collared shirt but kept the sleeves buttoned up.  Kim cuffed her jacket which I think is brilliant, because it adds a subtle edgy touch to the overall clean cut look.

4. Maxi Dress X Denim

Miranda Kerr rocked a long black maxi dress with a denim jacket, the perfect look for spring and summer.  Add in some sandals and a patterned bag and you’re ready to go.  For this look, it’s all about adding in bright accessories!  Make sure to roll up the sleeves to keep the look from being too fancy.

5. Black Denim X Blue Denim

Gigi Hadid’s look is such a simple and quick go-to denim jacket look!  She’s rocking a white tee and black jeans–pieces almost everyone has in their wardrobe, and topped it with a light wash denim jacket.  Gigi chose to complete the look with tennis shoes–the perfect shoes for a day out in the city.

 6. Buttoned Up Denim

Sarah Jessica Parker wore her denim jacket completely buttoned, a easy way to make the look edgy.  By adding in ripped jeans and boots and a patterned top peeking out of the bottom of her jacket, SJP completed the look. I don’t really see denim jackets buttoned up that often, but I think it’s quite chic!

 7. Dark Denim X Light Denim

Selena Gomez decided to mix a light wash denim jacket with dark high waisted jeans, finishing it off with a black high neck top, gladiator lace up heels and a bright red bag.  This is such a James Dean inspired look!  Draping the denim jacket keeps the look from being to preppy, instead giving her outfit a cool girl vibe.  The bright bag compliments the dark top and pants, while the heels make the look sexy!

 8. Denim Shirt X Jacket

Beyonce paired a light wash denim jacket with a high waisted denim skirt.  She chose a simple white top and nude heels, along with gorgeous Chanel pins and a cream bag.  Yes the Chanel is amazingly gorgeous but what I love most is how she paired similar colored denim with a simple white tee.  If you want to emulate this look but don’t have Chanel pins (don’t worry I don’t either 🙂  ) add more bling on the arms.  I don’t want to make holes in my jacket anyways ( well, I would for Chanel 🙂 ) so putting more jewelry on the arms will still add that ‘wow’ factor.

 9. Denim X Mesh

This is probably my favorite look of all.  This gorgeous lady is Leomie Anderson, a model and blogger and I absolutely love her style!  She paired a light wash loose denim jacket with similar colored ripped denim shorts.  To make the look edgy, she wore mesh loose top with a bralet underneath.  My favorite part about the look is the all white Adidas sneakers.  It’s such a sporty chic look but also really minimalistic, since she keeps things simple by wearing only white and light wash denim.

How to Look Chic in Sweatpants and Sneakers

May
12

I love feeling comfortable in my clothes and sweatpants and sneakers are the perfect combo to me.  Instead of limping in heels or feeling self-conscious in fitted jeans, my new go to is sneakers and sweats.  It’s entirely possible to look chic in this athletic-inspired combo, but it’s all about how you style it.  Check out three ways to look chic and stylish while wearing sneakers and sweatpants!

1. Choose a Printed Sweatpants and Top Set

Jourdan Dunn wore a pineapple printed sweatsuit set with her Adidas Superstar 2.0 sneakers, an easy stylish combo!  The great thing about this look is that you can have fun with the pattern or print, as long as you keep it consistent with the sweater top and pants. Make sure to roll up the sleeves, just so the look is a little more relaxed and effortless. Her sweatpants and sweater are by Zoe Karssen.  She also designed other sweatpants with crazy patterns, including a bat pattern, as well as stars and palm trees. The Adidas Superstars are the perfect sneakers for the look because they give the outfit an edgy vibe.

2. Add a Crop Top and Denim Vest

Candice Swanepoel wore black Nike sweatpants with a white loose crop top and denim vest, finishing off the look with her Adidas Superstars.  This a definitely a more daring look than Jourdan’s, but it’s still casual and relaxed.  The long sleeve white crop top is super loose, which compliments the loose sweatpants.  The whole look works because the top is cropped–revealing her stomach and making the look sexy.  The light wash denim vest is a great way to make the outfit a little less revealing while also adding that effortless vibe.  The sneakers keep the look casual and works perfectly with the color palette she chose.  This look screams effortless cool! Check out these sweatpants at Asos-they look pretty much identical to Candice’s and they’re only $33 USD!

3. Tuck in a Simple Loose T-Shirt

Cara Delevingne wore two simple pieces and she looks so stylish!  She chose navy sweatpants and tucked in a gray t-shirt.  She wore gorgeous Chanel high tops and reflective sunglasses to finish off the look.  The key to this look is making sure to tuck in the tee, because if not, it could look a little sloppy–by tucking it in, you’re defining your waist and making it more streamlined.  The white sneakers bring a pop lightness to the mostly dark-colored look.  This is such a easy look to recreate–a simple tee and solid sweatpants! Uniqlo.com has similar navy blue sweatpants for $30.
